Love It, Have Another One, And Another — Great car for the money, full leather, dual climate control, full electrics, on board computer. not great on handling, but it's not a sports car, its a sensible family aircraft on wheels

Pros: comfort

Cons: add a towbar and drag your own petrol station around. drive mix of heavy foot and economically and get about 26-27mpg average. use cruise control when you can

Great Car. Very Comfortable And A Pleasure To Own — I really liked this car. It wasn't the fastest or best handling car...but for day- to-day driving it was great. Very comfortable on the road.

Pros: Comfort, gas mileage, fit and finish, extras like ventilated and heated seats

Cons: Needs better acceleration, handling

Nice When Launched; Now A Little Dated — Quirky but good power and great to drive. Particularly like the throttle-by-wire that has different sensitivity depending upon when 'sport' button is pressed.

Pros: Easy drive

Cons: Badly needs a new model and new skin

My Favourite — Performance 0 - 100 abt 10 sec (some small mods!), excellent brakes, top speed - faster than I ever want to go! Beautifully finished, good looking, specially the beige interiorior and dashboard styling. Does abt 8 L per 100 km, nicest car to drive that I have ever had (although not as MUCH FUN as a Golf 1). I have made some small upgrades to the (9 speaker, 5.1 channel) sound system, only plays CD's, no DVD's. but sounds quite good. This car has many thoughtful features that I like - "Night Panel", a lot of courtesy interior lights. Handling on winter roads is nothing short of amazing. I have had nothing to repair on this car, except for replacing the rear shock absorbers when I bought the car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior styling, driving position.

Cons: Largish, not very economical.

Slightly Pricey, But Great Performance By Lee

Beautiful, fast, and smooth. The 2.3 engine puts out 265hp, and the turbo has little to no lag. Smooth performance anywhere in the RPM range. Read More
